    How can SLPs help children of color heal from collective trauma? "Collective trauma" explains the psychological distress experienced when a group or large community experience a shared trauma. This can be the psychological impact of watching protests and riots in response to police brutality cases like George Floyd, or other experiences like the ever-going water crises in Flint Michigan.

    Pepperdine University (2021) provides insights on how we can help children heal from collective trauma. This is necessary for SLPs so we can ensure the welfare of the people we services (ASHA Code of Ethics, 2023).

    Doing research for an upcoming presentation, Ethical AI in Speech Therapy: Harnessing the Future with Responsibility, and came across this.

    "The $20 million, UB-led initiative — funded in January by the U.S. National Science Foundation and Institute of Education Sciences — will create artificial intelligence systems that ensure children with speech and language disorders receive timely, effective assistance."

    "Since then (April, 2023) researchers have begun lab researching and building prototypes of two AI systems: the AI Screener, which will identify potential speech and language impairments by listening to and observing children in classrooms; and the AI Orchestrator, which acts as a virtual teaching assistant to SLPs by providing students with ability-based interventions."

    AI is here and can be a positive or negative for speech therapy. What do you think of programs replacing speech-language pathologists?

    As we see so many posts about New Year’s resolutions and “New Year-New Me” plans, we find ourselves comparing our current actions to our friends/family/colleagues.

    ❌ Stop.

    I want you to know that I struggle with this too -and yes, I know everyone thinks I’m an overachiever- but I also have ADHD and too many spinning plates sometimes put me in a frozen state of overwhelm. Then I look around and it seems like everyone else has their life together and I’m scrambling to catch up.

    This of course is not healthy -and you can easily see that for me … so why can’t you see this for yourself? 🤔

    So I’m putting this out there for you, for me, for us.

    We are doing a great job at whatever we are focused on right now.

    🪫 Maybe it’s to refill our batteries
    😷 focus on our health
    💕 a little more time with family
    📚 or to just finish that book we’re reading.

    👆those are all true for me!

    And when you are ready … you will be back to being ON FIRE! 🔥 🔥🔥

    And we’ll be here to cheer you on!

    🥰 ❤️ Post some love in the comments below for those of us who are waiting a little longer to plug into 2024!!
